president could use. >> well, there's no question about it. he's got to develop the counterpunch to deal with all the revelations because that's what they would be and how he has handled his finances. and that's just a reality that he faces. i think there's genuine concern in the romney campaign that to go beyond what he's done is an invitation for more opposition attacks against him. there is precedent. you look at his own father and how many years of tax returns he released. as an example, all of that will be used against romney. as i say, a lot of this becomes a distraction. because if you're the obama campaign you want to keep the subject right here. because what obama is trying to do is tear down the alternative. really make this a choice and say this is not a guy fit to be an alternative to end mr. obama's presidency. >> i know you will drill more on "meet the press". >> we talk to ed gillespie, senior adviser to mitt romney and we'll talk taxes with dick durbin from the senate. >> thanks. >> thanks, lester. >> now here's jenna. >>> lester, thank you. today authorities in aust
